Yea!!!!!! I finally got this picture uploaded!!!!! The Sandy River Grange is closing so they offered this wonderful Round Oak Wood Stove to me to use in the barn. She is about 9 feet tall and I am going to have her decorative trim re-nickeled. I am so happy to give this stove a home. She will continue to warm Mercer residents. The stove has stood in the Sandy River Grange for decades. I can remember seeing it when I was young and attending a Grange dinner. I have always loved this stove and I can't wait to build a fire. Mike is putting up the chimney today.
The siding is "vinyl and final". I wanted to put up would to preserve the heritage of the barn, BUT it was more expensive and it would require upkeep in several years. So the final choice was a medium grade barn red vinyl. It matches the metal roof on the farmhouse next door so I like it. Now my barn is standing on her own four legs wearing a brand new red dress.
